March 4, 2015: Yamuna Expressway which connects Delhi to Agra, is soon expected to serve as the electronics manufacturing hub for the country and hence can give a major push to Modi government’s ‘Make in India’ campaign.
According to a recent report published by leading national daily Times of India, around 12 major companies from countries like Japan, Korea and China have shown keen interest in setting up their manufacturing units along the expressway. In fact, these companies have already sent their delegates to explore some favourable sites in the area for setting up their plants.
PC Gupta, CEO of Yamuna Expressway Industrial Development Authority said that some of the deals with these big players are already in advanced stages and couple of them are expected to close very soon. Even though he has refused to reveal the name of these companies but he has said that these companies are involved in the business of mobile phones, LED lights, televisions, solar pumps and auto parts among others.
